Presents twenty new designs for pillows, rugs, an envelope purse and a chessboard. The chessboard was made as a sampler, with a different stitch in every one of its 64 squares. Each one is diagrammed in enlarged detail. Most of the other designs feature a central motif with a figured background, a border, and for pillows a boxing band. These elements are interchangeable so that a great variety of combinations is possible. Color schemes are suggested but the worker may of course follow her own preferences.
